Above is a less than perfect image of a Black-necked Stilt taking flight. The birds feet are cut off making it a bad shot. Mistakes happen in our life and we tend to beat ourselves up every time it happens. We want to be perfect and we are not. So many institutions place "perfection" as something we should always be all the time. We hear it at home, at school, at church, in sports, at work, and in just about everything we do. However, we fall short again and again. Mistakes will happen in life and what we need to do is learn from them, doing better the next time. Even the most Holy of people acknowledge that they are not perfect, but they learn from their mistakes. So, don't beat yourself up but learn "MISTAKES HAPPEN -LEARN FROM THEM!"
